Default My New Training Wheels

Well since I picked up a few MPH the Hustler started chime walking and everybody told me I needed training wheels .
I just got my new 380 tabs in and test fitted them and had to cut for clearance for the drives and props.

Its nice having friends that are in the machine shop biz . We chucked it up in his CNC mill and made alittle cut then I debured the edges and shot some paint on them .

Presto training wheels as Joe Hustler called them. Hope they work

So does this mean you're going to stay in it long enough to see triple digits now?

Yes

Already been there just no GPS to prove it . Talked to Bret at B Blades and sent him the dyno sheets . He said the torque Doesn't drop off enough to hurt and should carry it up to 6000 with some labed 30's I got it up to 6000 with 28's chime walking bad . I gps it at 5700 at 99.6. full fuel and chime walking the other day. Just have to work up to it slowly.I have talked to 2 people with 388's with 750 hp motors and there in the 107 and 109 range on gps.

and I can change a pulley and gain another 90 hp and about 75 ft's of TQ on pump gas if I need to .But the props and tabs should get me there pretty easy

I hope the longer tabs settle it down some the girls dont like it chime walking

Well there done .I even replaced the anidoeds just for looks . That was a easy job ,it took more time test fitting them than anything else.
If ya don't cut them they will hit the drives and props if the trimmed just right

If the water is good I will try them out Sunday and see if it makes a diff.
